What can we Shade for you?

Shade for Playgrounds – shade structures to protect children

Shade protection on a playground protects not only children and adults from the sun’s harmful U.V. rays, but also prolongs the life of expensive playground equipment and rubber surfacing from premature wear and deterioration.

Shade Systems offers a wide variety of fabric shade solutions for your playground:

For covering large play areas, choose our Mega Spans for the most economical shade with heavy schedule 40 pipe columns and structural steel beams. And removal and re-attachment of the fabric canopy is a breeze, since our innovative and patented Turn-N-Slide™ quick-release canopy fastening system is built right in!

For a more imaginative approach to shading your play area, our ‘Sail’ systems add a stunning skyline to your playground with their uniquely-shaped tensioned fabric canopies in a variety of colors. And like our Mega Spans with Turn-N-Slide system, our ‘Sails’ are also engineered for easy removal and re-attachment. See our brief video of how they work.

What happens when you combine our Mega Spans with ‘Sails’? You get our Multi-Level ‘Sails’ – fabric shade with flair! Layers of alternating fabric canopies create a complex visual statement to shade your playground with aesthetic appeal.

To get all the benefits of our Mega Spans, but with a soaring skyward design that will help make your playground a focal point, look no further than our Shade Kites. Like our Mega Spans, Shade Kites also feature our remarkable Turn-N-Slide canopy removal and re-attachment system built right in. Watch the video to see how it works!

For the best sun protection products, choose Shade Systems for our extensive line of shade structures, umbrellas, canopies, and sun shelters to cover playgrounds, bleachers, dugouts, sports fields, pool areas, waterplay and waterpark areas, concessions, vehicle parking, and other outdoor spaces where protection is needed from the sun’s harmful U.V. rays.
